The BEST movie

Tonight we watched the movie Breaking Away. This is one of our favorite movies. Omid & I saw this movie together for the first time in Pullman and we still love it. It's about some kids in a college town in Indiana. The main character, Dave, is obesessed with cycling and Italians. His dad is getting sick & tired of Italian everything.
The town kids clash with the Greeks at the local college and they race each other in a cycling race. I can't reveal any more - because it will spoil it for you if you haven't seen it. Netflix this movie today! You won't be disappointed. You will recognize a lot of the actors in the movie. It won several Academy Awards in 1979. Enjoy!
Our favorie character is the dad (played by Paul Dooley). Here is Omid's favorite part of the movie:
Dad: What is this?
Mom: It's sauteed zucchini.
Dad: It's I-tey food. I don't want no I-tey food.
Mom: It's not. I got it at the A&P. It's like... squash.
Dad: I know I-tey food when I hear it! It's all them "eenie" foods... zucchini... and linguini... and fettuccine. I want some American food, dammit! I want French fries!
